Approaching the roof on Veins of Glory.
Veins of Glory chases a pair of quartz intrusions to a large roof and is the first bolted route left of Milky Way. Interesting, steep climbing up directional holds and side pulls off the ground lead to a solid and well-protected crux at the roof. Finding your way around the roof and getting established on the slab above is a delicate affair-- the holds seem to totally disappear just when you most need them. Once on the slab, smear up easier terrain to the anchor.
7 bolts to chains. The first bolt is slightly high, and I have seen people place a supplemental piece. Better to get a spot and stay on the rock.

I thought the single finger single pad pocket was a bit overstated, but it really is a single finger, single pad pocket above the roof to balance you up. Fun route, well protected roof crux. Lower crux is reaching the first bolt. Small gear can help keep it tame.
